Propeller QL

A while back, a fellow Quanta committee member told me about a QL emulation board based on a Propeller chip, normally used in robotics boards etc., the Propeller P8X32 chip is a multicore microcontroller.

I thought I’d go back and have a look at where this project got to. It seems at least two prototypes got built., and there’s a whole section of the website devoted to the QL board, which was quite interesting to read, even if I didn’t understand some of it!

  1. I was bored this morning! 🙂

    I found that Wikispaces, where the links in the main article point, had stopped providing free wiki space to non-educational projects. Hence the vanishing on the Propeller stuff.

    I found links to the QL Emulator at https://github.com/rosco-pc/propeller-wiki/wiki/pPropQL and also to a Q20 version at https://github.com/rosco-pc/propeller-wiki/wiki/pPropQL020. There’s also a Q40 version “in progress” at https://github.com/rosco-pc/propeller-wiki/wiki/pProp040 but it’s brief and not updated since February 2015.

    Cheers,
    Norm.
